What a fun, hot summer! After people to see and places to go, I’m back with lots to share and will start with a yummy, fresh, recipe for tangy dilly dip.
I said HOT right? Boise’s been in the 90s and 100s all summer long. Usually it starts to cool in the middle of August, but it’s extra steamy and we are hoping for a cool down, but no luck yet! We’ve been keeping meals easy and simple and we are crazy for this extra dilly dip.
Fresh, crunchy vegetables and tangy, cool, creamy dill dip is a savory snack, or nice served along-side grilled chicken or as a spread on fresh tomato sandwiches. I even had a little dilly dip left, thinned it a little more with some dill pickle juice and it was a really yummy salad dressing on our seafood salad last night. I’m sure you can probably give me a few more ideas of how you’d use it, please share in your comments!
Greek yogurt adds protein, lowering fat and dill pickles give it zing. Try serving it with sweet mini-peppers, broccoli, celery sticks, baby carrots, and cherry tomatoes. They are colorful together and arranged on a serving tray make any get together or meal extra special.
Cool and creamy, tangy and dilly, I love this dip with lots of fresh veggies!
- ½ Cup Mayonnaise (I like Best Food's Olive Oil Mayo)
- ½ Cup Greek yogurt
- 3 minced dill pickles
- 1 Tbsp Dill Weed
- 1 Tsp Seasoned Salt
- 1 Tsp Chopped Onion Flakes
- 1 Tsp Parsley
- This recipe is easily made with a food processor or blender. Add all ingredients to processor bowl or blender and pulse until smooth. Chilled in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Serve with fresh veggies, pretzels, chips, or chunks of soft bread.
Thanks for stopping…stay cool!
Your plate of vegetables looks so pretty. I would love to try your dip! Pinning it for later.
This sounds like something I would love! I’ve bookmarked it for football season:@)
I’m sure you have delicious homemade pickles to make it extra yum! Thanks Lynn…
I’m a huge fan of anything dilly. I have even actually grown the stuff successfully. This looks really delicious to me, and just like Lynn I was thinking about football season. I even thought about her famous pig skin challenge.
You’re right this is up for the pig skin challenge! Thanks Debbie…
Hi! I was just thinking about you yesterday! Great to hear from you! Hope you’ve had a great summer!!! HOT HOT HOT here! Sending Nebraska hugs!!
Thanks for dropping by my blog Renee. Funny to hear you talk of hot when we are so cold and wet!! Cheers Karen. http://www.madewithmytwohands.blogspot.com
So busy here too and just as hot. We have cooled down a bit the past couple of days though and it feels great. I love dill dip with veggies and this sounds like a great version with the yogurt. Here, the Best Foods mayo is called Hellmans and it’s the only brand I buy 🙂
Your dip sounds yummy! One of my favorite flavors is dill. We need to get together soon. Were you at the pillow case thing last night. Barbara Barnnard called and invited me but I forgot all about it. Maybe we can get together next week sometime!
Love this recipe. Easy and sounds yummy.
